McKinney, Marilyn; Lasley, Saralyn; Holmes-Gull, Rosemary
English Journal, v97 n5 p52-57 May 2008
Family writing projects can change the nature of classroom writing instruction and rejuvenate teachers. Marilyn McKinney, Saralyn Lasley, and Rosemary Holmes-Gull report on their study of one such project in an urban school district. Using the concept of "third space," they describe the influence of this family literacy program on teacher practice.
